See, Here’s the Podcast Ep. 20: Star Trek: Beyond Review

entertainment, podcasts

A stellar cast.  Literally.  I mean, they hang out in the stars, therefore, they’re stellar.  Get it?

Star Trek: Beyond is tight, witty, and another welcome addition to the new ST universe.  The cast shines the brightest, featuring wonderful performances from Chris Pine, Sofia Boutella, Karl Urban, and Simon Pegg.

The film suffers from some pacing issues in the 2nd act.  The main cast is split up into several duos which are very entertaining to watch, but the overall plot takes a hit from the numerous sub stories.

It’s a fun flight back into deep space, with intense action sequences and a heavily make-up’ed Idris Elba.
